  1. I understand that designing a game that accurately portrays Spidey's gracefulness is a difficult task, but in previous games the right “feel” wasn't represented. This is the area where Spider-Man: The Movie makes the biggest jump.
  2. As much as I enjoyed the aerial combat, its overuse makes the innovative gameplay element a little less exhilarating toward the end. [June 2002, p.96]
  3. One could nitpick the title for what it doesn’t deliver, but what it does deliver is pretty amazing; a highly playable movie-licensed superhero game! Who woulda thunk it?
  4. Addicting and there are tons of unlockable items for gamers to come back to.

    [It] offers giddily satisfying gameplay.
  6. For once, gamers can play as Spiderman and use all of his awesome techniques while experiencing few problems along the way.

TheYeah the movie was incredible , the game is awful by some big flaws. Too start with , the camera is annoying and frustrating, very crazy. The objectives feel uninspired and simple, too plain, flat. The story is great adding the more content with the villains that we know from Mr spidey. is perfect kids, for adults, maybe. Full Review »

Sure the camera angles are a bit screwy from time-2-time but overall, this game is simply action packed! Tons of combat moves and airborne battles. It's like your actually inside a comic book. I also laughed a lot at Spidey and other's comical quips. Full Review »

    Compared to Spider-Man 2 this game is horrible. I really should give more credit to the sequel after playing this disaster. The camera andCompared to Spider-Man 2 this game is horrible. I really should give more credit to the sequel after playing this disaster. The camera and movement controls are so slippery and sensitive its hard not ending up on some wall or ceiling you didn't intend to go to. The tutorial voice actor was obnoxiously annoying (who also kinda sounds like Norm McDonald). The combat system is that great compared to some other addicting platformers/superhero games. If you are interested in Spiderman games for PS2 go for the second game much more side missions, civilian rescues, and cool bosses Full Review »
